What to expect

Secrets and lies hold the island together. But this summer, everything will fall apart…

A tight community
A forbidden love
A summer to change everything…

It's 1951 and Miranda's mother has just married in to one of the wealthiest families on Winthrop Island, a glamorous haven set off the New England coast.

But beneath the surface, the island is a delicate balance of tension between the wealthy summer families who holiday there and the Portuguese fishermen and domestic workers who keep the island going.

As Miranda begins to fall for Joseph, the lighthouse keeper's handsome son, the tension rises inexorably to the surface and an explosive end to the summer will change everyone, forever…
